We are big animal lovers (I’d love to say that picture above was our crazy pooch but it’s not…thats a stock photo sadly, Opie would never sit still for long enough to get a cute shot like that! lol) and so is the rest of our family, actually my mother is a huge huge animal lover!! So finding gift ideas for animal lovers wasn’t too difficult, but I wanted to give you some ideas that were a bit different, so check out our top ideas below.
Beautiful Animal Print – This stunning print is from Sarah Taylor Art and is the perfect gift for any animal lover who would like something a little more stylish. Prints of handprinted art are a great addition to any household and can add some great pops of colour and personality to a room. I adore this fox print called ‘The Fox of Delight’ but Sarah has a whole host of other animal prints available including stags, birds, cats and farm animals. I love her painting style with the colourful splash paint drip effect, its really different and individual. Check out her Facebook for new products and follow her colourful instagram to see how she works and what she’s painting.
Dog Toys! – Ok so this gift is if your animal loving friend has a dog obviously! But most dog owners love their dogs so having gifts for them is great, and they will love that you were thoughtful enough to think of their furry friend! I know Opie will be so excited to receive this Crufts Santa pull toy at Christmas and he will have hours of fun from it (although he is a naughty destructive puppy and will probably destroy Santa with the day, lol!) The Crufts shop has lots of other great doggy toys and treats available all year round for your furry friend and their owners!
Animal fashion – Fashion items featuring animals or animal prints are a great gift idea for animal lovers. I love this cute ‘Doggy Bag’ from Fifi + Pascale and know my doggy loving mum will love it, its cute and practical! A great item to pop in your handbag or in our car to have on hand when you need something to pop your shopping in, or to take to the park with doggy treats, toys and a towel to wipe off those muddy paws after a good walk. Fifi+Pascale also have some seriously cool wagging tail clocks that I am very tempted by, and some great dog related prints which I would love for the hall way where we keep Opies lead and rain coat.
Animal Themed Crockery – How amazing is this 2Kewt cat breakfast set from Gift Ideas Online Its the purrfect (sorry!!) gift for any feline fan. There is a whole selection of cat themed crocker items you could purchase from salt and pepper shakers and teacups to a cookie jar, sugar bowl or even a butter dish. Its an animal themed item that is useful and will get lots of use on a daily basis! It will look super cute in the kitchen of any cat lover. Gift ideas online also have a host of other great christmas gift ideas for animal lovers, like their animal glasses holders and kids animal craft sets.
Bird Feeding boxes – Boxwild is an amazing new company I recently found which send out bird feed boxes and even a monthly subscription for bird feed and feeders to help keep your garden full of happy birds all year round. This is a brilliant gift for any bird lover or avid gardener out there. Plus 50p from every box sold is given to bird and wildlife charities such as The Wildlife and Wetlands Trust and Butterfly Conservation. This really is a different type of gift as I have never seen a bird monthly subscription box before, so your animal loving friend is unlikely to have received anything similar before.
